And the same is true for our Year 12’s, for everyone who has won a gold award, or gained a leadership position. Yes, they have worked hard and have shown individual persistence, but they haven’t done it alone – and they couldn’t. Like Cathy Freeman who felt lifted by those cheering her on, each person has been cheered on, lifted up and supported. In the words of John Donne, we are not islands, rather a part of a continent, we rise and fall together. Our strength lies in our community that supports each other with courage, compassion and hope.
Our blessings and prayers go with our Year 12 for their final HSC preparations! We are cheering you on!
